The Pink Dreamsicle!

Oh, she's a beauty and one of the loves of my life!  
The Pink Dreamsicle!

How to do it:
1/2 can of Frozen Pink Lemonade 2 ounces of Pinnacle Whipped Vodka 2 ounces of water Approx. 2 cups crushed ice
Blend and enjoy!
Add a bit more vodka if you find it is a bit too thick.

I can't do it.

I can't do it.  I can't not work out.  It just doesn't work for me at all.  I need to work out because if I don't, I'll get fat.  I can't be fat.  I need to lose 10 pounds.
I just googled "how to lose 10 pounds in a month".  It looks do-able.  Eat healthy, light foods.  Limit the carbs, decrease the fat, and workout 6 days a week.  Starting tomorrow.  Today, I'm drinking.
I should get up early to work out....hmmm.....

Fresh, whole beer.

I choose an odd time to start this blog as I'm currently taking a small break from running.  I am awaiting a surgery in October that will take me off of the road for about 6 weeks.  
Because I don't have any goals to train for right now (and really, what's the fun in working out if it's not for a goal), I'm focusing on my eating habits.
I have been struggling with "dieting" for quite a long time now.  Not that I'm overweight or anything.  Just my "diet"  in general. There are very few people in this world that are 100% happy with their bodies.  I'm not one of them.  I always think I have another 10 pounds to lose, regardless of what my weight is.  Quite often I'll make the decision to " do it" .  I've only ever actually accomplished losing 10 pounds one time.  It was awful.  I was so hungry....
  I don't think it's very healthy for our minds to always be fixated on eating, or not eating, all day, all the time.  Alm…

The Bottle Cap Slushy

I'm rather amazed that my first drink recipe isn't a Caesar.  I can make a mean Caesar.  I guess you'll all just have to wait for that one.
Right now I present one of my best creations yet....
The Bottle Cap Slushy.

Most of you will remember when bars used to have $1 shots.  They were generally an "Electric Popsicle" or a "Bottle Cap".  I loved the Bottle Caps!  After learning how to make them, I stumbled across the required ingredients to make this amazing concoction!!
1/2 can of frozen limeade 2 ounces of Pinnacle Root Beer Vodka 2 ounces of water approx. 2 cups of crushed ice
If you added too much ice, add another 1/2 to full ounce of the vodka.

And last, but not least, the conversation that occurred during tonight's slushy drink:
Me:   My children are driving me crazy. LWW:   Kids don't drive mom's drive SOBER mom's crazy!! Have a drink!  Me:  Oh, I did. A slushy one at that. I couldn't decided what to d…

The Dinosaur Medal

The Dinosaur Medal.

I didn't plan to be drunk last night.  In fact, I was quite adamant that I was going to have ONE caesar with supper and that was it.  Oh, but then the red wine was there intriguing me, begging me to drink it.  I love red wine.  Love it.  Before I knew it we were on to bottle number 4 and I was drunk.  Again.  
But it was so worth it.  
If I were to run this race not hungover, I wouldn't have any entertaining stories to tell.  It would just be another race.  10km was a lot harder than I expected hungover.  I did great up until kilometer 3 and then it all kind of went to hell from there.
I felt fairly not too hungover when the day first started out.  Coffee and conversations with my running partner kept me very optimistic.  After, finally, finding the place that we needed to go to get our race package, our day became amazing.  First, we got to take a shuttle to the race!  I love shuttles.  They make me feel like I'm part of something bigger.  After we arrived…

Drunk dinosaurs are always a good time.

It is 6:05am and I am sitting here writing this post while I figure out if I am a) hungover; b) still drunk; or c)good to go.  Part of me thinks that I should regret the 4 bottles of wine that I shared with D last night, and the other part is laughing at how awesome it is to be able to have that much fun and still wake up on time to run with dinosaurs.  (Side note:  I didn't have a CLUE why my alarm was going off this morning) Off I go to run with dinosaurs and bring home a wicked cool medal!   I should make some coffee....

Run, Run, Run for the hills.....

I've been struggling with this blog for a couple of years now.  I just never know what to write.  I want to write and I want to blog, but I've never had anything that I've felt passionate enough about to write more than one post on (except for my hatred towards most of the human race...but who wants to be that negative all the time?)
I think I've finally found something that I can focus on... RUNNING.
I've been a runner for a few years now.  Sometimes I feel like a super star, and sometimes I feel like a poser.  It comes and and it goes.  Obviously, based on how/if I'm training.  My running resume consists of a 5km race (my first race ever), 2 half marathons, and Mud Hero (6km of pure fun!!!).  Tomorrow I will be running in the Dinosaur 10km.  I'm only doing it for the medal.. There's a dinosaur on it!
My super awesome and inspiring running partner, A, brought up the insane idea of running a full marathon next year (2013).  I thought it was a great idea...…
